The State of Maryland and the federal government have made improving access to primary care in the Medicaid program a top priority.
Continuing Professional Development
“More clearly than any other, the physician should illustrate the truth of Plato’s saying that education is a lifelong process.”
---------Sir William Osler
The process of lifelong learning that Dr. Osler refers to is the foundation of continuing medical education or CME. It is the means that physicians use to improve their competence, performance and improve their patient outcomes.
MedChi is committed to CME that is evidence-based, clinically relevant to all learners, valid in content, transparent and free of bias or commercial influence, and grounded in the principles of adult learning.
The Mission of MedChi, The Maryland State Medical Society is to serve as Maryland’s foremost advocate and resource for physicians, their patients and the public health.
The MedChi Department of Continuing Professional Development (DCPD) complement this mission through its work in two areas: the development, planning, design and implementation of educational activities that strive to meet the needs of physicians; and through a recognized system of accreditation for intrastate organizations that wish to provide accredited continuing medical education activities.
